So where am I going with this? I realized I don’t really even pay attention to gas prices and with gas prices as high as they are, I really should. I decided that I wanted to play a game tonight…games are after all my favorite! Yes, I would play “Who has the cheapest gas on the island?” tonight and this would be fun!
The minute they took off, I got my list of 5 things (that I won’t stick to) and I headed out the door! Let the games begin! Oh this will be fun!
Game first, Walmart later! I started out toward the Seawall and began stopping at all of the stations taking note of the prices.
1) Exxon…is this a joke? You might have Rita’s Frozen Custard but I will not be purchasing gas from you any time soon!
2) Shell…come on now, your prices are high and didn’t Mr. Number Putter Upper Guy notice that the 8 was upside down? Seriously…will not shop here!
3) Texaco: Note to self…ask for Texaco Gift Card for next birthday!
4) Valero…Hey, that’s more like it!
But this night (this precious alone hour) was about me so I decided to take a break. All of these stores are on the Seawall. Why not pull over, sit on the Seawall, and enjoy the ocean for a moment or two before getting gas? Yes, I deserve this! I really do!
Ahhhh….relaxing! But I can’t stay long, have things to do, then have to get home! So as I get up (dang it, why do I always have to be so responsible?), turn around, and start skipping to my car back to my original mission, I see…
Welcome to Walmart! And the Germaphobes (ME) of the world thank you for this Walmart! I personally use three of these at each visit as I feel it’s necessary to wipe down the entire buggy, not just the handle. It’s OK, they said I can take all I need!
The strawberries looked awesome and only $1.67? Can’t beat that with a stick. B’s favorite “not sweet” sweet treat in his favorite flavor (mint chocolate) is only available at Walmart on the island. And although I did NOT stick to my original list of 5 items, I didn’t do too bad! Really I didn’t. We needed the disinfectant stuff, we needed the drinks, and the Febreze? Well it was limited edition! It would NOT have been there forever you know!
